The New Orleans Saints have lost right tackle Zach Streif for the season. He was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday with a right knee injury.
It’s definitely a huge blow to the team, especially the offensive line protecting 38-year-old quarterback Drew Brees. The team is also waiting for left tackle Terron Armstrong to get healthy, as he’s dealing with a shoulder injury.
Streif was injured in Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium in London, England. He was rolled up on during a play.
Armstrong may return in Week 5, but it does not appear the case, as the team is on their bye week. The team will start first-round pick Ryan Ramczyk in Streif’s place at right tackle moving forward.
Streif is a long-time Saints player, as he has been with the team since the 2006 season. He has been a starter with the team since the 2011 season.
The 34-year-old has played in two games with the team this season. He has played his entire career with the team.
